Giveaway: Family Night + Orville Redenbacher’s

This contest is now closed. Congratulations to Francesca!

With both kids in school (Logan every day and Madeline twice a week) and a stricter routine during the week, I feel that it is particularly important we pay careful attention to incorporating enough family time. It’s easy to get caught up in routines and just go about living life without making the most of it.

For us making the most of it means having memorable family activities. Family night activities are great for that. I always like to have a special snack or dessert ready for those nights.

Family Nights can be simple or elaborate but what matters is that you’re spending quality time together away from the routines and to-do lists. Some of our favorite things to do include: game or movie nights at home, trips to the Zoo or Children’s Museum and as of lately – the Bowling Alley!

One of my favorite easy snacks is popcorn. I grew up on Family Movie Nights with Popcorn and Lemonade during weekends at Dad’s. Settled in on the big couch, we’d dive into a big purple bowl filled with air popped popcorn. Though we’re all grown now, we still enjoy a big bowl of popcorn when we’re visiting Dad.

It’s such a simple thing but of all the activities from my childhood, Popcorn and Movie Nights are definitely something I’ll always remember.

Orville Redenbacher’s wants to make sure you’re having memorable Family Nights too and is offering a super fun giveaway to set you up!

Popcorn and potato chips! Ilike the flavored salts rather than the flavored microwave popcorn. The latter gets too oily!

There was nothing like a fresh homemade pizza, homemade popcorn in our popcorn maker, an s'mores when I was growing up.

Now as a newlywed, I hope to instill the same memories with my new family!

Movies and games of Scattergories or Twister rule the evening!
